heads around. joining me now is steve perry, host of tv's "save my son" also founding of the capitol preparatory magnet school. steve i'm glad you're here. we talk about schools. we as parents think that they're supposed to be sanctuaries for our kids. how did things get to this point and why? >> well, it's important that parents understand that over 65 million children went to a public school yesterday, and the overwhelming majority of them came home safely. your children are safe in schools. this was not a school shooting. this was a shooting that occurred at a school. this was a deranged individual who chose to kill people in a school, children and teachers. >> you make a good point. i have to say, steve, i've had a psychologist, a criminologist on the set here with me named james fox who authored a book which talks about violence in schools from preschool through college. the fact is there is enough information to put together a book on this. what do you think it is about schools that appeals to the minds of disturbed people like this? they want to create carnage in this

house. >> reporter: steve, this is probably the most emotional that we have seen this president as he comes out to address the nation to respond to these types of tragedies. the reason understandable. he talked about the fact that so many young lives were lost today. the lives of children who had so much ahead of them, children who had the rest of their lives to live, children who will not be able to have their own children. you saw a very emotional president obama today. you also heard a bit of a call to action. he talked about the fact that in the wake of this shooting, he would like to see meaningful action to try to prevent these types of tragedies from happening in the future. what specifically did he mean by that? of course, that will evolve in the coming days and weeks. right now, the president clearly focused on extending his condolences, his sympathy to the victims, to all of the people who are suffering right now in connecticut. you also heard him talk at the top of the remarks about the fact that he did reach out to the fbi director, as well as the governor of connecticut o

david knock murrah, white house reporter for the washington post. great to have you here. steve, i want to start with you because you just heard senator lieberman say that he thinks it's more likely that we're all going to be going over this cliff than not. is that the sense that you have been getting from lawmakers as well? >> absolutely. first of all, i just checked about 20 minutes ago. there are no talks going on today. the senate comes back on the 27th. there's a lot of stock being put many the fact that maybe mitch mcconnell and harry reid can cut a deal, but mitch mcconnell, though by his nature, is a dealmaker, feels a lot of these same kind of tea party pressures at home that a lot of members of the house feel. he has a potential primary challenge of 2014. the tea party is very strong in kentucky. that's ran paul country. he is very mindful of that. i don't think he is in a position right now to cut any kind of deal that would invite a problem for himself at home. >> all right. when we hear senator john barosso saying he thinks the president is eager to go over the cliff b

reasons -- you're shaking your head, steve, so you get it first. people think, 12 years of intense pressure on you. 4 years of running, 8 years of serving, into your late 70s. does anybody want to inflict that on their lives at the end of their life basically? your thoughts? >> i think there's a compelling case she doesn't run. 1992 they came to the national stage, and they have been on the national stage since then. for 15 of those 20 years all the way through 2007 she was -- she and her husband were the top targets of the right in this country. she called it the vast right wing conspiracy. there was something to that. it's not that they absolutely will beat her in 2016, i think she could beat them, but it's an issue of do you want to endure that kind of day-to-day attack politics, vicious politics, for another four years, for another eight years, or do you want to say i have proven enough in public life and i want to do something else? >> i don't know. i think she showed no signs of her energy lagging as secretary of state, and that's a pretty tough job, too. i'm not saying it's

different reaction to it. you have to wonder, what would the steve feinberg's do would they be happy to collect their blood money if this had happened in some other state? >> well, you look at a lot of people reacting to this, who never had the kind of reaction you and i had, for example to any of these other shootings. so i guess it doesn't shock me so much that a guy who owned this company, suddenly looked up and said oh, my god, i was involved in this. i think people didn't think about it as much as they should. and i also think again, it is a sign that he is sensitive to the way people are responding to this and probably just wants to get his company as far away from any connection to this possible event as he can. >> but this is a new reaction, we have not previously seen the owners of a gun company come out and say, in effect, this is now too horrific of a business for us to continue in. >> if nobody invested in gun companies then we may all be in better shape. but the other thing, you talk about the nra's power. some of it comes from the fact that the senate, for example, is bias
